The Staff Room Podcast | EP21 The Bastard Teacher With Special Guest Marvin Foe
This is a special edition episode as I won't be sharing any anonymous stories this week. But instead I'll be speaking with Marvin Foe, the author behind the brilliantly entertaining and highly enlightening book 'The Bastard Teacher'. Having read it myself I think it provides the most honest picture into the world of non-mainstream education. It's punchy, It's honest. It's funny. It's sad. It's mint! I think Marvin's blurb says it all... The Bastard Teacher - Sometimes kids are little twats, sometimes their parents are stupid cunts, sometimes the staff are complete dickheads, and more often than not the Ofsted inspector really needs to be told to fuck off. These are the brutally honest and unfiltered true stories of a teacher, working with students who have been deemed too unruly for mainstream school and the staff that are insane enough to show up every day and work with them. Laugh and cry as you read crazy tales of education, amputation, defecation and… Tit wanks?

This week a headteacher has sent me a story about one very annoying parent who sounds like a proper 'Karen'. Tez Ilyas is one of the most celebrated stars in British comedy.

He's appeared on Live at The Apollo (BBC Two), The Last Leg (C4), Mock the Week (BBC Two) and Live From the BBC (BBC Two). Tez’ Channel 4 comedy Blap 'Bounty' is the most-watched show in the strand’s 10 year history. In 2019 he fronted his own Channel 4 satirical sketch series The Tez O’Clock Show to huge critical acclaim. Throughout lockdown, he wrote his new hotly anticipated debut novel 'The Secret Diary of a British Muslim Aged 13 3/4, a teenage memoir' - available to buy now! ⁠ If you want to hear more cracking episodes you can find us anywhere you get your pods.

The Staff Room Podcast | EP8 "I’ve worked with little knob heads in various roles" with Special Guest Daisy Earl
This week I share a story from a teacher who clearly had other plans in life but ended up in a classroom rather than on the West End. They tell a story about the time they were working 2:1 with a teenager called Teddy who is a "sweet lad at heart but does have a temper worse than the Kray twins". My guest is the fantastic Daisy Earl. Since starting stand-up in 2013, she has quickly attracted plaudits; winning ‘Best New Comedian’ at the Scottish Variety Awards in 2015, and then being crowned ‘Scottish Comedian of the Year’ in the same year, making her the first-ever female winner. She has supported Tom Stade on his nationwide tour and has appeared as a guest on BBC Radio’s ‘Breaking the News’, the STV ‘Late Show ‘and BBC Radio 4 Extra’s ‘Best of the Fest’. We talk about Daisy's hilarious but traumatic school days, what it was like going to private school and I even surprise Daisy with a short story that I received from her favourite school teacher. Plus Daisy really does show how she feels about this week's teacher's tale.

Welcome to The Staff Room Podcast
Calling all teachers! Have you ever had that kid in your classroom that’s a total troublemaker? Or that class clown who’s made you laugh even when you know it’s wrong to? Or maybe that moment of absolute classroom madness that lives long in the memory? If so, The Staff Room Podcast wants to hear from you. The Staff Room is the only place you can share all your teaching tales and not worry about any backlash as it's totally ANONYMOUS. We all need a bit of light-hearted fun at the moment, that's why all our episodes come out on a Friday afternoon so you can have a few drinks as you listen. I know this podcast wouldn't get an outstanding rating from Ofsted, but it does offer outstanding stories from teachers of what they really think. So if this tickles your pickle hit the subscribe button and if you've got your own teacher's tale that you'd like to share, drop us an email to: staffroompod@gmail.com and it just might become an episode! And remember - what happens in the staff room stays in the staff room. It's 100% anonymous. No one likes a grass. Take it easy, Harry & The Staff Room
